I would start a 20lbs and add as needed depending on how much line the AJ was taking.

which jig?

400g nagamasa, 420g braid long hammer used Varivas Avani tuna PE 5 and either a 100lb Jinkai leader or 200lb jinkai. 100lb was tied in a Trilene knot and the 200lb was crimped. Both was attached to the main line with either a modified albright or PR knot.

two jigs at the same time?


No Peter, when I said up to 100lbs I was refering to more than one Aj.

Oh yea I had on a red sevenseas belt, blue zenaq gloves, red aftco shorts and a red GA hat. I can't remember what color my flip flops and shirt were.
